The fast-casual chain that seeks to change the way people eat on the go becomes among the only locations in the U.S. serving Kombucha on tap

(CHICAGO, IL; June 30, 2015)—Protein Bar, the fast casual health concept serving high protein and nutrient-packed food to on-the-go customers in Chicago, Denver, and Washington D.C., now offers Kombucha on tap in two delicious flavors – Organic Strawberry and Organic Trilogy – at its River North Idea Greenhouse location in Chicago (352 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60654), where new menu items are introduced and tested before being introduced brand-wide.

“Kombucha on tap is the perfect example of why we created the Idea Greenhouse” says Protein Bar President and CEO Samir Wagle. “As a company that prides itself on leading innovation in the health food business, we look forward to introducing more exciting offerings to our guests”

Rich in probiotics that are known to boost immunity and overall health, Kombucha fits with Protein Bar’s mission to serve tasty, trend-forward health food to its clientele of busy, wellness-minded patrons.

Upon launching this unique offering, Protein Bar becomes one of only a handful of restaurant concepts in the U.S. to offer Kombucha on tap, which will be available in 16 ounce portions for $3.99 each. The team is excited to evolve the Kombucha program and plans to extend the on-tap program to all new Protein Bar locations to open in the future.

About Protein Bar

Matt Matros, founder of Protein Bar, opened the first restaurant in Chicago in May 2009 after shedding 60 pounds by following a high-protein diet. He created the eatery as a place where healthy food that provides the right balance of protein, good fat and healthy carbs can be universally accessible and affordable.  Protein Bar serves customizable high-protein blended drinks, bowls, fresh-made chili, soups, salads, and the signature Protein Bar-ritos. All menu items are high in protein and fiber and low in empty calories and refined sugar. Protein Bar uses organic, all natural, and locally sourced ingredients.  Protein Bar restaurants are located in downtown Chicago, Oak Brook, Schaumburg and in Washington D.C. Protein Bar will also expand in to Denver and Boulder, CO in early 2014. For more information, visit and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
